SC Villa has petitioned the Uganda Premier League over Vipers player hooliganism in their recent league clash at Masaka Recreation Ground.
On Tuesday, SC Villa lost 1-0 to Vipers courtesy of Mzee Dan Sserunkuma’s goal a result which blew the title race wide open.
In a letter dated April 18th, 2018 received by this website, Villa writing to Uganda Premier League Secretariat , notes that Vipers SC captain Nicholas Wadada vandalised property at the stadium.
“During half time break, Wadada Nicholas went ahead and broke the stadium property including the visiting dressing room window,” reads part of the letter.
The letter which is signed by Villa’s Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Valley Mugwanya, cites that the incident caused chaos and almost led to riot from Villa fans.
Mugwanya goes on to narrate that the ‘heavily deployed’ security and police managed to calm down the matter.
It should be noted that in the first leg encounter between the two sides at Kitende, Villa were docked two points and two goals after their fans vandalised property at Mary’s stadium property.
The event called for Vipers SC president Lawrence Mulindwa to call for a media briefing in Kitende where he showed his anger, making an infamous ‘a club without a toilet’ statement.
With a game in hand, the petition finds Vipers SC in second place on the log with just three points below league leaders SC Villa.
